Delayed diagnosis of celiac disease increases cancer risk

28 March 2007BMC Gastroenterol 2007; 7: 8

Patients with celiac disease are at increased risk of developing cancer if they are diagnosed with the condition later in life, Italian researchers say.

The team emphasizes "the importance of a prompt diagnosis of celiac disease."

Recent research has indicated that celiac disease patients are more likely to develop small bowel adenocarcinoma than the general population.

Wow.. Good article. My dad died of stomach cancer in Dec 2004. Even though I never saw anything mentioning a connection if you had undiagnosed celiac, it made sense to me that that may have played a role. So I figured that I at least had less of a risk for that.

But I never heard anything about the chance of breast cancer being increased. Since my mom died of breast cancer in 1993, it's nice to know that I may have improved my chances there as well.

Thanks for posting this.

Wow I new there was in increased risk, but I never knew just what. That might explain things in my family (as cancer is the main killer, and nobody has Celiac). Kinda creepy at the same time, tho....

You might want to print out the medical article and show it to your physician. It is from a reliable peer reviewed medical journal. They usually believe their own peers, rather than "us".
